Cotsen Institute Open House 2010

Interested in learning what conservators and archaeologists do? Want to learn more about graduate programs in these fields? Want to spend a day visiting labs, learning about cool projects or talking to interesting people?  Well don’t miss the annual Open House at UCLA’s Cotsen Institute of Archaeology held on Sat. May 8th, from 1-4pm.

The Open House gives the public the opportunity to have a glimpse into the world of archaeologists and conservators to find out what exactly they do and to learn about the various projects they are currently involved.  Lectures, weaving demonstrations and visits to various labs (including our small analytical lab at the Cotsen) are available.

If you’re interested in conservation and want to learn more about our program, stop by room A410 of the Cotsen Institute to talk to UCLA/Getty Program students and faculty.  You’ll learn about what conservators do, what graduate conservation training programs are like and the types of projects we work on.

More information about the Open House can be found on the flyer below or by visiting the Cotsen Institute’s event calendar.  You can check out some pictures from last year’s Open House in this Facebook album.
